    OK, I couldn't help myself, and it's done! Pre-ordered the new Jack Casady 20th. Anniversary bass! zZounds has the four payment; no credit check; no interest; no tax; no shipping deal, and I couldn't stop myself! They say expected to arrive to them about July 20th., I'm in no rush. Now, all I have to do is find a buyer for my silver burst JC Ltd. Ed.!

    Very Nice! That's a looker that's going to sound great.

    I've got Jack Casady pup and guts in my Artcore 140 and it's a tone monster.

    I do hope the anniversary model is free from the odd-dropoff that many of the cassady's had with their volume and tone pots. I swapped mine with 1000k pots and it helped quite a bit, but it's still somewhat there. Still, the tone is worth the oddity of adjustment.

    What are the stock pots in the typical Casady model?

    That is the mystery.
    There was some discussion of it here before, but I think they were 25k. Could be wrong though. I'm still unclear if the problem was strictly the rating of the pots or their quality.

    I already know that the pick guard is coming off, and I'll be switching the tuners for Hipshot Ultralight's and the bridge for the Hipshot 3 point. What I'm undecided about is to transport those items from my silver burst, which are black, or purchase new in gold! I think the gold would really look great against the red, but there are a lot of black highlights throughout the wood grain and knobs, so I'm debating both pro's & con's. What do you all think? Black or gold?

    Received a gift from Sire* (see sig)
    That sounds like a wonderful combination - any clips?

    Nope. Never recorded that bass.
    It pretty much sounds just like a Cassady with perhaps a bit more attack and a tiny bit less warmth. Not surprising since the size, scale and construction is about the same and the only significant differences are the 2 part bridge, and the pup being located a bit closer to that bridge.

    I'm normally not a gold hardware guy, but I think this would be the bass to go gold on. Gold knobs and hardware would be really pretty. Perhaps go all the way and take a fine tipped gold paint marker and make the writing on the impdence switch plate gold also?
